The LOOK Edit: Suede Skirts

Suede skirts are having a major fashion moment. With the 70s revival going nowhere and suede pieces all over the catwalks there has never been a better time to invest in this wardrobe staple.

This vintage inspired piece has had the seal of approval from fashionistas Alexa Chung, Olivia Palermo and Rosie Huntingdon Whitely and if you haven’t got your hands on one yet now is the time.

Whether you decide to invest in real suede (it doesn’t come cheap – even on the high street), or plump for the imitation option (a.k.a suedette) your skirt will provide endless outfit options and excellent cost-per-wear value.

While suede might not be the most practical of materials (avoid rain and red wine), it is undeniably spring like and provides a much needed switch up from leather now the weather is finally improving. We love wearing ours with ankle boots and a pussy bow blouse but come summer we’ll be switching the boots for mules and the blouse for a silk cami.

You might think of suede skirts coming in neutral shades such a tan or black but thanks to the trusty high street you can now pick up options in a whole rainbow of hues. Topshop have an excellent range of bright suede skirts, and we love River Island’s stone grey option.

This season suede skirts come in lengths to flatter all body types and personal style choices. Will you plump for a cool mini or a chic midi? Plus, you can pick between wrap around, button down, pencil or A-line styles– there really is one for everyone.
